Congratulations to Dr Ann Wylie for winning King's Sustainability Award
Dr Ann Wylie, Senior Teaching Fellow in King's Undergraduate Medical Education in the Community, has won a 2015 King’s Award for Sustainability. The award recognises staff who effectively engage with key audiences to establish initiatives to address environmental issues with a positive impact on the environment.
Dr Wylie has been working over many years to include global health, health promotion, climate change and sustainability issues in the Guy's, King's and St Thomas' School of Medical Education curriculum.
As a consequence of her efforts, all 450 fourth-year medical students in the new King’s medicine curriculum 2020 will undertake a core quality improvement project, including global health and sustainability. The projects will align to relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals and some projects will focus on sustainability and carbon footprint issues within the health care systems.
‘I am very honoured and delighted to receive this award, and thanks to Kay Leedham-Green for nominating me and supporting this,’ said Dr Wylie.
